The Phuket Experience ( Day One)

Miss Princess Monkey with her welcome drink at the resort

I had wanted to blog about the trip earlier but as usual the work schedule has been tight and by the time I reach home there is hardly time for anything else. Actually this trip was last minute as usual and prior to this me and the H were arguing on where we should go. We were planning a trip but kept disagreeing about the destination(also a usual occurence) until after almost two weeks of no progress I gave up and told him that I really did not have the mood to go anywhere if we kept having  different ideas!

So when I was least expecting it he called me up excitedly the week before and told me that he had scored really cheap tickets to Phuket. And he had booked with MAS.

At first I was sceptical. Err Phuket? land of cabaret and tiger shows?! Are you serious?! But because I was just happy that the ticket prices were a steal at RM1600 for return air tickets for all three of us. I began my research and started planning our activities.

Then it dawned on me OH MY GOD. I was going to have authentic TOMYAM. This was enough for me and I started to get excited, besides the pictures of the really beautiful islands of course : p

It has sort of become our little family ritual now. We fight about where to go and the budget. The H will finally pick out a destination a week or few days before  and I will start planning the activities. In the future hopefully we would at least have a clue two weeks before tee hee.

Anyways I'll let the pictures do the talking eh?

The Red Travelling bag. We are not light travellers unfortunately!  

Ayra enjoying the in-flight entertainment. She loves headphones. 
My favourite view. Its very calming and reminds me of Allah and how small we are.
Phuket Island aerial view.

Upon arriving at Phuket International Airport. Ayra is excited and I dont't remember what I was looking at ! LOL
Ban Lai Mai Resort. Convenient location which was within walking distance to Patong Beach and a  night market. Took us an hour to get there from the airport.

Had dinner at a nearby Muslim stall frequented by our guide PokHim Ayra still as problems with the peace sign tee hee.

TOMYAM yang authentic dan sangat sedap sigh I miss it already.
The Bathroom in our room, I was quite disappointed that It had no bathtub! But I was glad that  they had  good mirrors! LOL

Thank you for posting.
I've been looking at some of the posts on this website to get an idea about travel in Phuket for my next vacation.
